Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Jrue Holiday scored 26 points, dished out 10 assists and slammed home a rare road win for the Philadelphia 76ers against the Los Angeles Lakers in a 103-99 decision at Staples Center.

Evan Turner finished with 22 points, 13 rebounds and five assists for the Sixers, who never trailed in the second half and improved to 2-3 on their eight-game road trip.

Spencer Hawes totaled 13 points off the bench, including a critical jumper down the stretch after a Kobe Bryant 3-pointer cut the Lakers' deficit to two.

Bryant paced Los Angeles with 36 points on 14-of-29 shooting, but the starting frontcourt of Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard combined to shoot 3-of-19 from the field for 18 points.

Steve Nash added 12 points and 10 helpers for Los Angeles, which had won six of seven coming in and was perhaps looking ahead to a matchup against the Clippers on Friday.
